RATING AND REVIEWS

A great wet weather piece that's durable and quiet.

This is my second Foray jacket. I lived the first one so much I decided to add another to my bugout bag!

2.5 Stars. Nice jacket, but DWR finish is nil.

Bought in May 2019. I am of two minds about this jacket. I like the weight, fit, Gore Tex, and features. But...the DWR is a miss. Other reviews have complained about the DWR finish and it wetting out very early. (See SleepingBagBoy, Drue, JustVu, Chris (from Quebec), chrispy, B (from CA), etc.) I had the same experience. First use ever was for a 30 minute walk in the rain. It had wetted out substanially in several areas before I got back. Gore Tex is Gore Tex, so I was dry, but the DWR was minimal right out of the box. Perhaps there a problem in the manufacturing or something. I will likely keep it and re-treat it, run it in the dryer, and/or live with it. (I would return for a refund if I paid full price. See below.) The ventilation zips will likely remedy any condensation that happens from the wetout. But if a working DWR finish is important to you, keep looking. I bought mine at a 40% discount on the OR site, so maybe they have discounted the problem lot, but that's just my speculation. Or maybe they're discontinuing my color (naval blue/dusk). Sizing is normal. I'm 6' 1" and 160 pounds. I wear a medium in almost every outdoor brand, same is true here. It seems made to wear a layer underneath.

Light, versitile and packable waterproof jacket.

5

Very light and packable with the added benefit and reliability of GoreTex. Very soft and supple fabric but the zipper tends to snag though.

Good for women also !

I am a woman and I think the Aspire women's coat was too tight at the shoulders. The Foray Men's Jacket is wider at the shoulders, but tighter at the waist than the women's coat. I really like this coat ! Only think I have to say : the zipper is a little bit tough to use.

I love this rain gear!

If I am going camping and floating the Foray jacket is going with me.

Great compromising rain jacket!

Have tried lots of different waterproof/breathable membranes and the only one that is waterproof is gortex, which doesn't breathe well. Income OR and the best pit zips in the world, get WP from the fabric, breathability from the zips and I can actually hike in the rain comfortably without being in a sauna.

Changes that I've noticed between 2018 and 2019 Foray Jacket

4

I have the 2018 Foray Jacket and the 2019 Foray Jacket. I've noticed two design changes between the two years . The 2018 had a strap with velcro attached to it that allowed you to roll up your hood. This strap fastened to a loop on the upper back part of the jacket. The 2019 version that I received did not have this feature. Boo. The 2019 Foray Jacket seems to have a bigger left pocket that allows for the jacket to have a smaller thickness as compared to the 2018 but with a larger height. The width seems to be the same. For me the result is that it packs better. Yes!!

Men's Foray Jacket: Great at first, but does not last

I bought this in July 2018 but before I go on further I should describe what I do and where I've used this jacket. I am a collegiate Trip Leader and Instructor. I bring college students around the country climbing, whitewater boating, backpacking, canoeing/kayaking, and much more. I wear this jacket commuting to school and work on my bicycle as well. The jacket was doing great for the first month, but it soon began to lose its luster. In August, 1 month after purchasing this jacket, The DWR was gone on the shoulders, chest and forearms. The water would soak the outer layer losing breathability. I also noticed any area that the DWR was lost (such as the shoulders) this would act as a spot for water to infiltrate the rest of the outer fabric and eventually lead to the whole jacket being wet. While DWR inevitably wears off, I was surprised at how quickly it disappeared from this jacket. .A few months later in November I washed the jacket for the first time using Nik-Wax. The nikwax did its job for another month and the jacket was back to where it was. I broke the jacket out again this spring on a day on the lake with heavy wet snow. Within an hour the GORE-TEX failed and I was soaking wet after 4-hours on the lake. I rewashed the jacket with Nikwax and a few weeks later 4-hours in the rain and I was again soaking wet. For a jacket not even a year old I am extremely disappointed with this jacket. Whats worse is that I purchased this jacket because of the infinite guarantee that OR had knowing that if anything happened to the jacket they would have my back. At the end of 2018 summer they changed their warranty to any other outdoor brand. Now I am stuck with a windbreaker that I can no longer return under warranty because of "wear and tear" even though a shot jacket less than 1 year is unacceptable for any rain jacket at this price and GORE-TEX. OR's old warranty stood them out from the rest. Would say more about this product but OR limits the how long the reviews are :(

This product is amazing, it's my first real rain coat and I have it since April 9th 2019. I will definitely buy another one when I won't be able to wear the one I have now anymore.

Do your rain jackets come in extra large tall

Pam

Kassie

Does the Forey jacket have a DWR finish?

Iluvbreck

it does the new PFCEC Goretex paclite fabric has an DWR coating to provide added water resistance on the surface of the jacket.

Kassie

There is a strap with velcro inside the foray jacket. What is its purpose? How is it used?

Allen

You can use it to stow the hood by rolling up the hood, threading the tab through the loop on the opposite side, and fastening the tab back onto itself.

Jordan

How do you roll the hood? I can't get it to lay flat and be comfortable. Thanks.

Derfy

Start at the brim and fold the hood inward in ~2" segments until you're able to thread the velcro tab on the inside of the jacket through the loop on the outside and fasten it back onto itself.

Jordan

What is the sleeve length for the Foray Jacket?

Joey

The Foray Jacket in size L has a sleeve length of 36.5"; subtract an inch for each size smaller; add an inch for each size larger.

Jordan

What type of Gore-tex is used on this jacket?

NC

The Foray Jacket uses Gore-Tex PacLite.
